Have you ever seen a _D. scorpioides_ with solitary flowers in the
leaf axils? I at least haven't. The scant material of _D. m._ does
not display any gemmae (they would probably make little sense on the
ever-wet Tepuis, anyway). So _D. meristocaulis_ seems to be quite
remote from subgen. Bryastrum both geographically and systematically.

Kind regards
